To convert one unit to other and correctly size partitions as wanted.

Well then, back to my previous question :
p.H wrote:Or do you want to define partition sizes with binary prefixes ? If so, why do you think it is better than decimal prefixes ? Does it matter that much whether a partition size is 30 GiB or 30 GB ?

Why would one need to size partitions in GiB instead of GB ?
